They will cost Ole his job: Roy Keane lambasts Man Utd players for 6-1 humiliation against Spurs

Former Manchester United icon Roy Keane has lashed out at the players for their lacklustre performance against Tottenham Hotspur which saw a 6-1 devastation at the Old Trafford last Sunday.

Manchester United has had a terrible inauguration to their 2020-21 Premier League campaign with a 3-1 home loss against Crystal Palace. After a close 2-3 victory over Brighton, hosting Tottenham in their 3rd game of the season ended up in an abysmal scoreline for United as their former gaffer José Mourinho had his side strike six times.

Now down in 16th position in the table, both the players as well as Solskjær are facing severe criticism from the supporters for one of the worst starts into a new season ever, some even vouching for the removal of the Norwegian gaffer from the helm.

Meanwhile, football pundit and Red Devils legend Roy Keane, who led the club for eight seasons, steps in to call out the substandard performance from the players and claims they can cause Ole to lose his job at United.

A disgrace to the badge: Roy Keane

Expressing his disappointment over the result, Roy Keane termed the performance as a shame to the United crest and insisted that such results might cause Soksjkaer to be sacked just like Mourinho, who was fired from the club back in December 2018.

“The performance against Spurs was disgraceful. A disgrace to the badge with that performance”, Keane spoke to ITV.

Man Utd’s lead in the 2nd minute of the match from a spot-kick of Bruno Fernandes turned out to be the consolation for the hosts, as Ndombele scored the equaliser just two minutes later.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men in the 28th minute after Anthony Martial was shown the red, while Spurs stalwarts Harry Kane and Son Heung-min both scored two goals each and Aurier netted in the sixth as the United defenders were massacred all over the place.

“(There were) too many bluffers and ultimately, these players will cost Ole his job,” the 49-year-old continued, “They threw the previous manager (Mourinho) under the bus. They will do the same to Ole.”
